Reviewed May 19, 2013

Our villa fronted on to the main pool area with hot spa only steps away. The BBQ area was beautifully clean and well maintained with a kitchen. There were ample lounges around the pools for sunbathing. Our tiny patio was furnished with a table and four chairs plus cushions and surrounded by delightful tropical garden. The villa came equipped with a full kitchen (no oven), microwave and all other kitchen paraphernalia you could require - bonus all in good condition too. The two bedrooms were upstairs ,main overlooking the pool area with a king size bed, very large and comfortable. Second bedroom had twin beds. The bathroom was extra large with shower and had been renovated. The second toilet and clothes washing area was outside the kitchen door-downstairs.
This resort is very child friendly but all became quiet by 8:30 p.m. so very suitable for older guests to relax as well.
The front of the resort overlooks the Noosa River with Ferry terminal for the 15 minute ride to Noosa if desired. There are ample restaurants, cafes, take aways, shops and shopping centre in the immediate vicinity - all within walking distance.

Altogether a very large, beautifully maintained and reasonably priced resort. I would highly recommend it.

Room Tip: If stairs are a problem ask for a villa with no stairs

Dear Mr and Mrs 'Silver-Budgie-Oz'
Thanks so much for staying and for the great write up about our resort and facilities. I am sorry we didn't let you know that the microwave in this villa is actually a convection stove as well - we could have helped you use it and I apologise about this.
Housekeeping were pleased to read your feedback about the cleanliness of the villa, thankyou for this and our Back of House also thrilled to hear your comments about how well maintained the resort is.
Thankyou again for being our guest and we look forward to welcoming you back to stay.

We just had a weeks stay at the Islander Noosa Resort. The Resort has a lovely family feel and we were very happy with our accommodation. The pool is lovely and the tennis court was fun! The staff were very friendly and extremely helpful. The location is great, just across the road from the river. There is much to do and many choices of places to eat. Highly recommend for people who are looking for good value :-)

Room Tip: Our room was at the back by the tennis court and was lovely!

The Islander is well placed in the middle of the restaurant and shopping precinct of Noosaville with direct frontage onto the Noosa River. A walk before breakfast along the beautifully landscaped Noosa River finishing with coffee at one of the myriad of cafes is a great start to the day. The Islander is beautifully landscaped in a tropical theme with boardwalks, little streams and a nice lagoon pool. The rooms are not 5 star but are comfortable with good beds and self contained kitchen facilities. A great place for a holiday with kids and good for couples also

We booked to stay here for the weekend after Easter and even though the weather wasn't great, we had a great time.
The resort has a lovely central pool area, which is solar heated, but we hadn't had any sun all week, so was quite chilly, although that didn't deter the kids, they were in there as often as they could be and they loved warming up in the 2 spas located in that area.
The only little negative for me, I think, was that there isn't a great deal of room or lounges around the main pool area, so I'd imagine you'd be struggling to get a spot when really busy.

There are tennis courts and a fairly big bbq area, which we didn't get to use, but saw several people using it and there is also a games room, which is located just above reception, which has a tv, video games and a pool table.

The villa itself was great, it had 2 bedrooms upstairs, there was also a locked door which I think probably led to another bedroom, nicely fitted out bathroom, downstairs had everything you'd need for cooking, washing, etc, etc, tv, dvd player and we found it pretty quiet at night.

The Islander is in a great spot in our opinion, as your just across the road from the beautiful Noosa River, only a short drive into Noosa, there are plenty of restaurants, cafes, shops, etc, around and closely located to the Islander, it was just perfect for us and the Eumundi Markets are only a 15 minute drive away!

Even though the weather wasn't at its best, we had a great time and look forward to going back there for a longer stay!

Room Tip: Rooms away from the main pool are quieter.

Dear Mr and Mrs Carrob
Many thanks for taking the time to write such a thorough précis of our resort and the location in Noosaville. You have described our resort and villas very well, and the facilities and I was pleased to see that the children still used the pool in the wet! We are in a great spot and very spoilt but its great to hear that our guests such as you think so and enjoyed! We have spare sun lounge chairs that we can bring to the lagoon pool when its busy so I am sorry if we didn't bring these down after Easter. Thank you for staying, Bula Cathy

Villa #80 was great. It's next to a pool, spa and a bbq - awesome! It was clean and had almost all of what we needed for our 2-night stay. Extra pillows would be nice, and of course, at least a bucket for water to wash our selves in the toilet. A water source in the toilet is always what is lacking in most, if not all, of the hotels/resorts that we have been to in and out of Australia.

The Islander is just across Noosa River where it's lovely to take a walk, have a picnic or for the children to enjoy a playground and take a quick dip in the river. There are also many cafes and shops along the resort's street. It's a 5-min. drive to Noosa Heads' Main Beach.

The Islander's 3 pools (one heated) and spas are also a very nice treat. It's a good children-friendly resort. Our request for a quiet room next to a pool was accommodated. Thanks, Cathy =)

We're really hoping that we can go back and stay there again.

Room Tip: Villa #80 is very clean, near its parking spot, and quiet although next to a pool, spa and a covered...

Thank you for staying - we loved having you and the family stay. Next time you stay, please ask us and we can certainly help with the pillows and another bucket. Our apologies that we didn't take care of this when you were staying with us. The feedback about our location across from the river and we are spoilt with the cafes!

We booked this resort online based on reviews from others. We had little idea what to expect.

We drove from Brisbane with our two young kids. It's a quick drive and easy to find. Noosaville is only 3 km away from Noosa Heads and Main Beach. The Islander is located on the main road along the river estuary, and over the course of the week we found the location to be ideal. You can get to Noosa very quickly by ferry or bus (hard to find parking for your car), or even walk.

On our reservation we requested a ground floor room, and were accommodated. A friendly receptionist welcomed us and let us check in early, which was a great start to the holiday since we were a good few hours early. The kids walked into the "room" and loved it. It's more of an apartment than a room. Two bedrooms, bathroom, and an open plan kitchen/dining room. The kitchen has pretty much everything, so you can cook if you want - we did almost every meal.

There were two tv's in the room, with a DVD player. Round the corner there is a DVD rental shop, and a supermarket, so you can really make yourself at home.

The pools are nice, and the heated jacuzzi's are a nice touch for adults. Kids can safely have a great time here since there is a kids' pool that's not very deep.

Overall we had a relaxing time and would definitely come back given the chance.

We stayed here four nights over the Easter holidays. It was great, not too busy but enough other families with kids for the children to play with. The pool area is fantastic, there are pools, spas, BBQ area and a tennis court. Our villa was a two storey villa but we only used the ground floor area. It had a kitchen with enough utensils to cook diner and breakfast. The washing machine and dryer proved also to be useful. Overall it was clean and tidy. The staff was very friendly and they really did their best to remember our names. They organised an Easter egg hunt for the kids which was lots of fun! We will definitely go again!
